unfit to be president. what does the romney camp do? they use one of their most winning surrogates, ann romney, because she's been far more likable than her husband on the campaign trail, but listen carefully to the first part of ann romney's explanation of why no more tax returns should be released. >> you know, you should really look at where mitt has led his life and where he's been financially. he's a very generous person. we give 10% of our income to our church every year. do you think that's the kind of person trying to hide things or do things? no. he is so good about it. then when he was governor of massachusetts, didn't take a salary in the four years. >> listen, giving charitable donations, however commendable, has absolutely nothing to do with whether or not a presidential candidate should release tax returns. they are two different issues. ann romney suggesting that this means mitt romney isn't hiding anything is, with all due respect, a ludicrous argument. mitt romney not taking a salary as governor is also totally irrelevant to the issue. here's the second part of ann

"the boston globe" expanded on the recording, only to find out that mitt romney was the top dog at bain capital three years after he said he left. according to the report, a massachusetts financial disclosure form romney filed in 2003 clearly stated he owned 100% of bain capital in 2002. and his state financial disclosures indicate he earned $200,000 as a bain executive in 2001 and 2002. the report also drops this bombshell, a romney campaign official who requested anonymity to discuss the sec filings acknowledged that they do not square with common sense. until now, romney laz protected himself politically from any bain business practices after he left the company. romney always says that he left the company in 1999,
